Survived.

Returned the 20 lb bag of meds to assisted living, and got her unpacked and moved back into her apartment. exchanged many tearful hugs. get on a plane tomorrow.

I'm going to go back in a few months when the weather isn't insane and spend a few weeks enjoying time with her without the existential anxiety of being her caretaker and medical first responder.

Rain is sideways now. The big maple in front of the deck is whipping its branches around like they were tentacles. Leaves are flying off trees and plastering themselves against any vertical surface. Very strong gusts every couple minutes. Cat still meowing to go out, very annoyed with me.

Wonder if Bro D still has power? Lot of outages in his area.

How can you loose a tree?
It will be around the yard (or around someone elses yard)
You'll find them.

Maybe I should have said the ground lost them. Or the air. They're definitely missing from 20/30m up.

It's not that bad right now. Partly because we're in a sheltered spot.

I just can't quite comprehend that this storm is doing more damage to your neck of the woods than it did to Jacksonville.

There are reports and photos online of roofs torn off, cranes tipped over, debris everywhere, multitudes of trees down - this is partly due to the species of trees most common here. Old spruce and fir fall down if you breathe too hard at them.

Power's out for several hundred thousand homes.

I mean, it's not like the Bahamas, but there is already significant destruction.

I feel pretty safe, worst has passed.

Warrnambool looks like a decently nice town.

It is 12 here with a cool breeze, so we've lit our first fire for the autumn - in the stove, not outdoors.

We have about a dozen trees down that will need to be cut and moved, but none of them landed anywhere problematic. The worst is a whole clump of 2 large and half a dozen smaller trees that all fell over together and are suspended at about a 45 degree angle over the lawn. They're going to be tricky and a bit dangerous to deal with.

They are promising restored power sometime tomorrow. It took them 10 days after Juan. They prepared better for this one and also have 700 armed forces guys helping clear roads and power lines.
